There's just something about the non-payday weekend after that sweet holiday break. Last weekend, everyone had some grandiose plans about getting out of town or spending three full days in a drunken haze. This weekend is different.

Sure, it's another two days of having little expected of you — with the exception of what your first sergeant tells you at the obligatory safety brief. But it doesn't feel like you're getting some awesome time off compared to last week. So, I guess it's time to actually do all that stuff you told yourself you'd do with your extra free time last weekend...

But it's not all doom and gloom. Take a break from your chores or those SSD classes you keep telling your supervisor you'll eventually do and enjoy some memes.
